Student Leadership Programs

Student Leadership Programs serve current students through specialized leadership development programs, campus-wide conferences, and individualized student consultations.  

Goals:
     1)   Assist in the development of leadership skills
     2)   Identify how leadership skills interact with other career competencies and how they can be used for the benefit of the communities participants are part of
     3)   Help participants explore other leadership opportunities on campus
     4)   Develop an awareness of the value of service

Applications for Fall 2024 are now OPEN.
